As Wern212 this card is pretty nice in HB. Now I'm going to talk about how I can win some games with this beauty.
How to kill with this card with Jinteki: Personal Evolution: A review
Jinteki PE does some work for you. It gives you 1 of the x net damage you need to kill. But what else do you need? clicks to play the operation.
If you install, for example House of Knives or Sting! and leave it there in the open (classic old jinteki technique since you can make it look like a Snare! or now a Urtica Cipher) next turn you go "advance, advance, advance: score" and Neurospike looks at you with a disapproving glance.
So the technique has to be another one. Thats where other cards come to help. One of those tools is a HB advancing tool: Seamless Launch. You will have more money and time to play, at least one Neurospike. But that usually doesn't get the kill. That's the HB approach. Not the Jinteki approach.
Here in the Startup format you can relay on La Costa Grid a card that allows you to bake stuff. Usually when there is a La Costa server the runner only contests when there is no advances in the server. Since an advanced Urtica Cipher or Cerebral Overwriter or Snare! -you can advance them- is pretty scary. And usually they are waitin that if it's a trap, that you over install on it to decide go there or not.
If you can sneak there an agenda while they go to RD or HQ and bake some advancements you will save the money and the clics. And then "oh, it was a Sting, 2 damage because the runner stole 1 and the Jinteki PE damage. Then neurospike. And neurospike and neurospike you have the clicks and probably the money. Easier if it's a 2 pointer or 3 pointer agenda. Vulnerability Audit it's good for that in Startup format since you cannot go and use an Obokata Protocol
Have fun with it = )
